Excerpt: The first time I set my eyes on this cooler was during CES 2012 and here we are now with the full release of this cooler. In the CES hotel suite I saw a few coolers on the display table, but the one that grabbed my attention first had weird elongated oval chrome caps on the top of the cooler with the usual caps covering the tops of six heat pipes as well.
Excerpt: The new Cooler Master TPC-812 CPU Cooler is designed like a high end cooler, but without the high end price tag or extensive weight. Can the TPC-812 fade the heat or will it just leave you feeling cold? Read on, and prepare to be impressed….
Pros: Lighter, Performs better than more expensive coolers, Universal installation simplified with less brackets to juggle, Allows for second fan mount, and they provided the brackets to do it!, Fits in CPU space on motherboard. Fan easily adjustable for higher memory.
Summary: Cooler Master claims that the TPC 812 can deliver the performance of a compact watercooler in a simple tower cooler design and, based on our benchmarking results, we can believe that. As our benchmarks showed the TPC 812 actually got more efficient at 4.7Ghz and still kept the load temperature within an acceptable range.
Pros: First Ever Vapor Chamber Design, Excellent Heat Capacity, Solid Construction, Dual Fan Capable, Powerful Fan Included
